Appearance: Pours a dark copper with a quickly subsided head.
Aroma: Dried cranberry, plum, honey, holly berry, cinnamon. Basically a holiday yankee candle.
Taste: Honey like malt, baked apples and cinnamon. Nutmeg and hop spice. Alcohol well hidden. Touch of ginger. Finishes dry.
Mouthfeel: Full mouthfeel. Prickly carbonation.
Overall: Nothing hoppy about this beer,so please don’t expect that to be the case, but very much “holidaze.” Often overlooked, this is a fun, affordable addition to a holiday tasting this season.
